Delightful and witty, this is a simple story of mistaken identity!

Peter and Paul are the best of friends, but when Peter gets lost in a terrible storm he can't find Paul anywhere. With the help of a big blue whale Puffin Peter sets off to find him. They find all kinds of birds that match Peter's description but none of them is quite like Paul.

Babies and toddlers will love touching the textured patches as they meet flamingos with fuzzy tails, shiny beaks and soft wings.

We have read other Petr Horacek books,  and when we this one came home from nursery from the Bookstart charity, it was a bonus. Great illustrations and a lovely story about friendship and not giving up on your friends. Peter gets lost and is desperate to find his best friend Paul again. He searches and searches and then finally...

A storm at sea results in two best friends getting separated at sea. Peter the Puffin awakes after the storm upon a whale who offers to help find Peter's best friend Paul. A series of assumptions and misunderstandings ensues. The story is very clever, and the drawings are very sweet.  My son loves this story, it is one of his favourites : )

My Son loves this book.  He remembers the words and enjoys the repetition of key words.  It is a little similar to 'That's Not My Mum' by Julie Donaldson but holds it's own and the illustrations are beautiful!

This book has a very simple story line about 2 puffiin friends losing each other.  One puffin enlists the help of a whale to find the other puffin with simple descriptions of his friend it teaches the reader about subtle differences in descriptions (here between puffins, penguins, pelicans etc) and my three year old loves it when we substitute the puffins names for his own and his brother's.  Still really enjoyable as we have been reading this book for a while now and is a good quick bed time story!

This is a very sweet story about two puffins, Peter and Paul, who are best friends. When Peter gets caught in a storm and lost out at sea, he meets a kind blue whale that tries to help him find his friend Paul. Leo loved the vibrant illustrations and reading some of the book by himself.

This is a beautiful, bright book. The story is simple to follow and my daughter really enjoyed the whale's different ideas about who the puffin's friend might be.

A story about Peter and Paul the puffin. Paul goes missing and his best friends goe to find him.

I personally don't like the illustrations in this book. They are bright but blurry. I tend to flick through books at the pictures and writing prior to buying it and this would put me off.

A nice story for bedtime reading.

The plus points to this book are the night simple but bright illustrations and the fact that the book isn't too long so ideal for younger children as a bedtime story. 

The story follows 2 puffins, Peter and paul,  who get separated and as the story unfolds we follow Peters journey back to paul.  Personally I feel this story is a replication of julia Donaldson's monkey puzzle. I don't know which story was written first but personally they're too similar and I prefer monkey puzzle. We've read both and I think my kids prefer monkey puzzle to.

If you haven't read monkey puzzle then there's nothing wrong with this story but I don't think you'd want both as they're too similar

This isn't a favourite of mine at all. The illustrations aren't that great, and the story doesn't really appeal to me. However, my 5 year old loves it and gets me to read it again and again, which could be why I'm not a fan!
